    No. 16 Gators Head to Elon for Midweek Matchup
    Katie Callahan UF
    Florida and Elon faceoff for the first time on Thursday

    The Gators are coming off a tightly contested battle with No. 17 Navy, dropping the 14-13 decision at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, while Elon dropped its last contest to No. 15 Duke, 18-15.

    This is the first meeting between the two squads, with Elon having only started its program in 2014. The Gators are 5-6 against North Carolina teams in program history, including a 4-4 record in the state of North Carolina.

    While Florida has a break in facing IWLCA Top-25 opponents this week, the team has competed against four thus far in the 2019 campaign and will face four more ranked teams before entering conference play. The Gators will play host to No. 4 Syracuse, No. 3 North Carolina and No. 9 Princeton in a seven-day span and then will travel to No. 18 Stony Brook.

    UF Game Recap: Lacrosse | Thursday, March 7, 2019 | Katie Callahan
    No. 16 Gators Find Success at Elon
    Defensive effort and draw control success puts Florida back in the win column
    Sydney Pirreca led the Gators' offensive effort, registering three goals on the night. Lindsey Ronbeck, Brianna Harris and Grace Haus also pitched in two goals apiece to help secure the victory for Florida.
    The Gators held the Phoenix to a .400 shooting clip (5-of-20).
    Haley Hicklen posted seven saves on the night, notching a (.636) saves percentage.
    How it Happened
    For the third game in a row, PIrreca got the Gators on the board first. On a fast break opportunity, she got ahead of the defense and buried the ball in the back of the net to put Florida up just over eight minutes into the game. Elon then got one back on a free-position attempt, tying the game 1-1 with 21 minutes remaining in the first half.
